Description

Advertised as "Six Days of Sound," Bill Graham set up a run of shows for six nights that culminated in one of his epic New Year's concerts. To accommodate the crowds, the venue was "the Fillmore scene at Winterland," and artists ran the gamut from Chuck Berry to the Doors and Big Brother & the Holding Co. to Quicksilver Messenger Service.

Before the dawn of computers and bar codes, Bill Graham Presents printed their own concert tickets, many of which are now considered exceptional works of art in their own right. Small facsimiles or derivations of the show's promotional posters, they were typically color-coded to indicate multi-night engagements and represent a bygone era of extended, one-venue engagements by major performers. So that Bill could reconcile sales each night, patrons purchased tickets at the venue box office and handed them right back over at the door, thus ending up in the archive as mint condition concert tickets. We may occasionally and in select cases offer for sale one-of-a-kind, extremely rare and valuable concert tickets in less than mint condition.
